Shampoo The Violent, Uninhibited, Purple-haired Fiancee
Shampoo is another one of Ranma's fiancees. She is completely (and I really do mean completely) uninhibited. Some identifying features are her long, purple (some say blue) hair, the ball ornaments in her hair, and the two bonbori (maces with large, colored balls on the ends) that she fights with. She comes from a tribe of Chinese Amazon women, and is their champion in fighting. Now, there is a law in her village, that if an outsider female defeats one of the tribe's females in combat, the outsider receives the Kiss of Death from the tribe member and is marked for death. However, if an outsider male defeats a female tribe member, then the two must marry.... Ranma, being the great genius he is, manages to defeat Shampoo in both female and male forms. So, Shampoo is at first out to kill Ranma-chan and marry Ranma-kun, before she discovers his curse. Once she does, though, she returns to China, brokenhearted. Her great-grandmother, Cologne, decides that Shampoo is to try harder and takes her to the Jusenkyo training ground. Yup, Shampoo falls into one of the cursed pools, that of the Drowned Cat. Unfortunately, Ranma is scared to death of cats. Fortunately (at least, for Shampoo), Shampoo doesn't care. She opens the Neko Hanten (Cat Cafe) in Nerima, a Chinese ramen restaurant, with Cologne and continues to pursue Ranma.
Mousse Blind as a Bat
Mousse is also from Shampoo's village of Amazons. His fighting style is one of hidden weapons--his voluminous robes are filled with daggers, swords, yoyos, morningstars, and other assorted objects. He's also as blind as a bat, even with those glasses on. He is madly in love with Shampoo--in fact, he proposed to her when the two of them were three years old. Unfortunately for Mousse, he mistook a rock nearby for Shampoo. Displeased with the mistake, Shampoo turned him down with a foot to his face. He followed Shampoo to Japan the second time she came and now works at the Neko Hanten, taking care of all the dirty work and enduring heaps of insult and injury from Shampoo and Cologne. During Shampoo's trip to Jusenkyo, he tagged along and fell into the Spring of the Drowned Duck. As a duck, he can still produce numerous blades and throw them with excellent accuracy--somehow, his eyesight improves markedly as a duck. Mousse hates Ranma for stealing Shampoo's heart, even though Ranma doesn't feel the same about Shampoo, and the two are often seen fighting over Shampoo, with Mousse being the loser of each fight. Mousse is tied with Ryouga as my favorite male Ranma character. Just gotta love those weapons.
Cologne The Old Ghoul
She is Shampoo's great-grandmother and head of Shampoo's tribe. She pushed Shampoo not to give up on Ranma and took her first to Jusenkyo to train and then to Japan again to open the Neko Hanten (as a front for Shampoo's efforts to win Ranma). She is occupied full time with helping out Shampoo and trying to keep Mousse away from Shampoo. She is very skilled in martial arts and is a formidable fighter despite her size, and is also knowledgeable with magical herbs and charms. She has taught much of those things to Shampoo as tools for winning Ranma. She has also taught Ranma and a few other characters some fighting skills for various reasons.... Cologne is 300 years old (the women of Shampoo's tribe are known for living extremely long) and is commonly referred to as the Old Ghoul.
Tarou Pansuto Pantyhose
Note: Tarou is not associated with the above three, really, but he is from China. Plus, good ol' Blade has persuaded me to remove him from the "Miscellaneous" page and put him here.
Tarou is one of the best fighters in the Ranmaverse. In his human form, his battles with Ranma are indecisive (for lack of a better word). In his cursed form, he beats Ranma handily. His cursed form is is that of a...well, the spring he fell into is called "Drowned yeti riding a bull carrying crane and eel" (Niuhoomanmaoorenniichuan)--and later, he also gains the tentacles and ink-shooting abilities of an octopus. Damned powerful form. He's got an intelligence level found rarely in the Ranmaverse; a really good strategist, for one. Kinda like Kodachi, 'cept not crazy. He's got a problem with Happosai--not because Happi "baptized" Tarou in that one spring (he likes his cursed form) but for the name that he was christened with--Panythose (Pansuto in Japanese). In fact, he wears a pair of hose as a belt to always remind him of Happi's wrongdoing. He's been trying to get Happosai to change his name, since by the rules of his Chinese village (not an Amazon, mind you), only the one who gave him his name can change it. For more information, visit The Panyhose Tarou Shrine. It's very complete.
